Our most popular course gives students a solid footing in photography and teaches you how to become master of your camera, whether you’re using compact or digital SLR. It’s fun, practical and covers all the basics. From photographing friends to creating eye-catchy compositions this course will provide you with the basic skills to make your photography stand out from the rest.
Teens will learn how to:
- use different camera settings for creative effect
- set a correct exposure in different modes and various situations
- create strong images and unusual pictures
We get to shoot out on location with fun briefs and projects, with a brief introduction to photo editing in Photoshop depending on the group.
Locations visited are likely to include Covent Garden where we are based, and may also include:
- Greenwich by boat
- Piccadilly Circus
- South Bank
- Camden Market and more.
This course can be used as a Skill for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme. It also leads on to our Teens Intermediate and Saturday courses where skills are refreshed and developed.

What students are saying:
“I wish I could do this course every day!”

“I have continued to the advanced course right after the introductory course because I enjoyed it so much! The course was wonderful, Julia was so professional and nice. She taught us so many tricks and tools to become more creative. I especially liked our days outside the Lab, photographing in the streets and looking for creative angles and perspectives.”
